297679Kansas Speedway plays hosts to the CV Products Trackside Program this weekend. Tonight found us supporting NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series’ drivers and their teams as they made their way around Kansas Speedway’s 1.5-mile tri-oval. The race — the SFP 250 — was marred by one caution after another (nine in all, or about one caution for every 18 laps). See below for a recap.

Next up for CV Trackside at Kansas is Saturday’s 5-Hour Energy 400 Sprint Cup Series race benefiting the Special Operations Warrior Foundation — a Tampa, Fla.-based nonprofit that provides college scholarship grants, along with financial aid and educational counseling, to the children of Special Operations personnel who were killed in an operational mission or training accident.

Here’s the complete scoop:

Race-day insight: After racing only twice so far this season, the 2014 Camping World Truck Series schedule will get hopping over the next couple of weeks. For the first time this season, the series will be in action in back-to-back weekends with the SFP 250 tonight at Kansas Speedway and next week at Charlotte Motor Speedway for the North Carolina Education Lottery 200.
Race recap and results: Kyle Busch led a race-best 104 laps and easily won tonight’s Camping World Truck Series race at Kansas Speedway. The victory, which came by 3.021 seconds over second-place finisher and last year’s race winner Matt Crafton, was the second of the season in a truck for Busch, and his 37th in the series overall. Busch’s former Sprint Cup teammate at Joe Gibbs Racing, Joey Logano, finished third, while Austin Dillon finished fourth and Tayler Malsam fifth. Rounding out the top 10 were Jeb Burton, German Quiroga, Ron Hornaday Jr., Joe Nemechek and Mason Mingus.

Race-day facts: This past Sunday, Clint Bowyer scored his best finish of the 2014 Sprint Cup Series season, a third at Talladega. And on Monday he announced that he and his wife were expecting their first child. That same day, his team owner signed Bowyer to a multi-year contract extension. Now the Emporia, Kansas, native heads back to his home state for a major career milestone — his 300th NASCAR Sprint Cup Series start. Over the first 299, Bowyer has accumulated eight wins, 52 top fives and 140 top 10 finishes. He’s also made the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup five times in his eight full-time seasons, including in 2012 when he finished second in championship points.
How to watch from home: FOX Television will broadcast the race starting at 7pm (EDT). If you’re not in front of the television, listen in on Sirus XM Channel 90 or via the Motor Racing Network.
